This program is designed to demonstrate the powerful synergy achieved by the combination of respect and leadership. The speaker introduces the powerful concept of respect as the cornerstone of a healthy and sustainable relationship - professional or personal. The program begins with a foundational discussion about respect and the elements of respect – rooted in the EKTIMIS Respect Model - a powerful visual framework for learning and teaching respect, researched and developed by the speaker. The speaker goes on to illustrate the powerful nexus between respect and leadership, and how the two principles form the basis for a lasting relationship in any environment. Business executives, senior management, and up-and-coming leaders have found this presentation vital and enlightening, and sometimes transformational in their views and attitude as leaders. The speaker engages the use of relate-able stories and examples to illustrate the topic. Typically, for audience sizes fewer than 100, participants receive a copy of the book, The Top Ten Laws of Respect in the Workplace - A Professional Guide authored by the speaker. For even smaller audience sizes, participants may receive the entire Top Ten Laws of Respect book series - which includes The Personal Guide and Family Guide. This speaking program may be provided in one of two formats: keynote or town hall (interactive) - to an executive or senior management audience, or to a mid-management audience. This program is also suitable for a private leadership development group audience.
